Windows Vista Problems & Controversies - Are you
aware of it ?
Windows Vista Problems & Controversies are due
to the delay in development of Final version or is it
due to hype created by news media? After all Windows
Vista, being an operating system, involves great creativity
and features. Computer professionals know that, operating
system is a collection of programs that make the computer
work through the use of its resources. To achieve it,
one needs to write lengthy programs to make the things
As the number of lines in the program increases, the
program becomes complicated as ever before. It is difficult
for a programmer to debug the lengthy programs. According
to Microsoft developer, Philip Su, Windows Vista has
nearly 2000 developers engaged themselves in writing
nearly 50 million lines of code for almost 5 years.
Just imagine the complexity of writing a program in
an operating system development.
What Developers think?
According to Su, the final release of the windows vista
is going to be delayed till 2007. It is he, who said
that, some of the developers are sidetracked with some
other jobs like bringing out patch to some buggy programs
of Windows XP, and also doing improvements to windows
2003 server and so on.
Which Vista features are useful?
Some may feel, in an operating system, some features
are really useful, while others may not feel that the
feature is useful. Philip Su in his Blog or posting
“The World As Best as I Remember It” says
at one stage that, the sidebar in Windows Vista is useless.
But, some others may feel that the sidebar is useful,
especially, after they make use of it.
Microsoft took a note of Philip Su’s blog, and
gave it comment on the same, as, "There are more
than 3,000 employee bloggers at Microsoft and we value
the great customer dialogue that these blogs create.
The viewpoint in this post is one of many - there's
also a great deal of optimism across the company and
the community for the progress we're making on Windows
Vista and the benefits it will bring to our customers.
We're excited about the great feedback and huge demand
we're seeing for Beta 2, and we're working very hard
to improve the product."
Though Microsoft has not yet released Windows Vista’s
hardware requirements, one come to know from its beta
releases that, Windows Vista needs large RAM capacity
of minimum 256 MB. This problem is mainly being criticized
and heavily discussed. There are some features, like
may require even more than that, to make it run smoothly.
Otherwise, some features may end with saying “Insufficient
Memory” or may run slowly, which can make the
system unusable during that time.
For any product, not only windows Vista, discussing
the problems in public, is good, but, not always. It
gives sound ideas to the development team, and developers
in the company. But, it also fries down the image of
the company substantially. Company should ask its employees
to discuss it privately before going public. Better
watch Microsoft before any other problem goes public.
Computers basically interact with human beings through
a variety of softwares. It may be pay roll system or
any other software, but, we need to know, in all, software
is being developed by human beings. Any thing that is
developed by human being is not perfect. Same thing
applies to the software also. But, unlike any other
product, software is developed in various stages, such
that it becomes easier to detect and correct errors.
It is the duty of the software developers to see that
the software develped works properly, without giving
